When I was in the process of backing up my writing (the first time in over six months), my laptop died. Until I have the money to get it fixed, almost everything I wrote is gone; there's no way to know if I'll ever get it back. All the planning and world-building and little snippets. The only thing left is my previous backup which is hilariously outdated. I don't know how to cope with this. Most of the time I just sit around staring blankly at the wall. Other times I feel, I dunno, free? Like I had this enormous monster on my back who finally buggered off. But mostly depressed. So, has anyone had anything similar happen to them? If so, how did you deal with it?
